Rigorous results about Relative entropy in QFT
Feng Xu, Department of Mathematics, UC Riverside,

We will present some rigorous results about Relative entropy in QFT, motivated in part by recent physicists work which however depends on heuristic arguments such as introducing cut off and using path integrals. In the particular case of CFT, we will discuss interesting relations between relative entropy, central charge and global dimension of conformal net.
